The Vampire Diaries

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev Will Suit Up for the 2013 Celebrity Beach Bowl!

Sure, they can battle Originals, but how are they at football?

On Super Bowl weekend, The Vampires Diaries co-stars and real life lovebirds Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev will join forces with fellow celebs to face former NFL greats in the 2013 Celebrity Beach Bowl. Don’t worry, it’s flag football.

This game of athletes vs. actors (and musicians, and models) will take place on February 2, and it will be played in New Orleans on the world’s largest indoor beach.

Beach bowl vet Nina and Ian will be joined by Jenny McCarthy, Jesse Williams, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion), Chace Crawford, Josh Hutcherson, Scott Porter, Maria Menounos, and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models Chrissy Teigen and Hannah Davis — not to mention Ian’s 50 Shades of Grey competition Matt Bomer.

They will play against the likes of NFL Hall of Famers Deion Sanders and Warren Moon, former NY Giants Jesse Palmer and Amani Toomer, Heisman Trophy-winner and NFL great Eddie George.

For those who can’t make it to New Orleans, the fun will air on DirecTV. Between this and the Puppy Bowl, we’re now pretty excited for the big weekend!
